Well, good for them. Somebody ought to do it. Those things are a menace. If one of them comes at us from out of the Sun, chances are we'll never know what hit us. Somebody will look up and say "there's a spot on the Sun today" and that will be all she wrote, famous last words.

Well, sure, it might suck for a WHILE, but if it comes from the sun then the impact might push our orbit about three feet wider; thereby ending global warming. I wonder if the peace prize can be given to an asteroid.

1.3 km in diameter, large enough to take out a big city, I'm guessing?

Sandwyrm: 1.3 km in diameter, large enough to take out a big city, I'm guessing?


1.3 km could potentially be extinction-level if it hit in the right spot and had the right composition

Our orbit already varies by more than three feet :)

Man, didn't they just do enough damage by rocketing their own spy satellite??

I mean everything that poor lady had to go through...

Aw, great. This will end up with them lobbing cruise missiles at us via a giant suborbital railgun in the Arctic, just wait.

Russia has expertise in space weapons. I approve of them spearheading this.
